High quality schooling – the best way ahead

By Afnan Wasif

The primary divine message was revealed to Hazrat Muhammad (peace be upon him) within the cave of Hira on the age of forty.

That first revelation was the preliminary signal of the declaration of Prophethood upon Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) to the seen world. The primary divine message started with “Iqra” which suggests studying. Thus, in Islam, studying, i.e. the acquisition of schooling, has precedence over all different issues.

A political get together in Pakistan has been elevating the slogan of “Riyasat-e-Madinah” for the previous few years. The state of Madinah got here into being after the migration of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) to Madinah Sharif. It’s price mentioning that what was the very first thing that occurred when the Prophet (peace be upon him) arrived in Madinah?

And that very first thing was the institution of a ‘Mosque’. Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) began educating individuals Islamic teachings which included ethical, financial, political and social values and beliefs from the mosque. He adorned the individuals with the jewel of schooling.

Because of this, the clouds of darkness and ignorance started to disperse. Then the eyes of beholders noticed {that a} group of Sahaba like Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddiq (R.A), Hazrat Umar Farooq (R.A), Hazrat Usman (R.A) and Hazrat Ali (R.A) emerged. They virtually manifested the entire world the best way to wrap up the success of each worlds.

For instance, nobody has seen justice and equity like Hazrat Umar (R.A) till in the present day and he turned a precedent for the world. The inspiration of this success was the primary commandment of Allah Almighty “Iqra”. A mosque is definitely a spot of worship in addition to a spot of studying.

And this work was achieved by the mosque in an effective way throughout that interval. However now, sadly, our mosques appear to be far behind within the execution of the latter process. This proves that the success of society lies in schooling. And based on Sir Syed Ahmad Khan, Rulers are like Societies. Training lightens the mind.

And mind, comprehension and logic allow an individual to tell apart between good and dangerous. An informed particular person will condemn corruption, dishonesty, hypocrisy, rudeness, mendacity, dysfunction and all such social evils and an illiterate one that is incapable of distinguishing between good and dangerous will do the alternative. “Say, O Prophet, Are those that know equal to those that have no idea?” (Quran 39:9).

It’s incorrect to say that the largest downside in Pakistan is Injustice. Comprehension is required to determine any downside in society which finally comes from schooling. There’s a dire want for high quality schooling that offers comprehension to the Pakistani nation. Thus far, the sum of money spent on schooling isn’t hidden from anybody.

We have now to determine our priorities thoughtfully and thoroughly. And we’re working out of time. Pakistan is now standing at a crucial juncture politically and economically. Our legislators and resolution makers need to resolve that schooling should be a precedence. It appears essential to confer with Islam as a result of Pakistan is an Islamic state and its structure insists on refraining from any phrase or motion opposite to Islamic teachings and rules.

However in actuality, this has not occurred until in the present day. As a result of now we have been confirmed unable to know and observe even the primary precept of Islam in seventy-five years.

By following these rules, the non-Muslims have gone forward of us and we now put our fingers in our mouths once we see their progress and prosperity. Due to this schooling, a reliable twenty-seven-year-old younger woman in Sweden has been appointed because the Minister for Local weather Change. She doesn’t hail from any Bhutto, Khan, or Sharif household. As a result of when the appointment of Bilawal as Minister of International Affairs passed off, the nation was fooled.

Bilawal isn’t sitting on this chair due to any schooling, onerous work or benefit, however he hails from a robust household, so he stands entitle for this chair. We have to take concrete steps to supply high quality schooling as a substitute of at all times chanting that Injustice is our greatest concern.
